Would you please tell me about this child who you have listed at our cemetery. I do not have any record for him. Who were his parents? Is he related to you?

Thank you,

The gate is locked to the cemetery, but if you can hang on a little while, we are trying to contact the land owner for permission to get access.

Thank you for the suggestion of cemetery. I was going by the obit and they named it differently. I also found her husband's memorial in the cemetery that you suggested.

Mary, I see that you have added a couple of photos to my grandfather's memorial. I'm curious about the photo of the broken stone, who's stone is this, where is it located and how is it relevant to this memorial?

I am just going to delete mine and put in an edit on theirs. That's why I duped it, when people put in several names on the last name slot, it won't show up in a search and therefore people don't know they are listed if they search for them, and they list them again. Really wish people wouldn't do that. Thanks

RE: Thank you for the photo!!!
Mary - I've been away from Find a Grave for a few weeks but wanted to acknowledge the message you sent regarding the photo for Esther Margaret Hermuth Myers. I'm glad I was able to provide the photo you were seeking. Have a wonderful new year! Kevin

Fidelia Kerner Gassenschmidt
Hi Mary,

I have requested a photo of my great-great-grandmother's grave shown above. The Find-A-Grave page was created by you. The person wanting to take the photo has contacted me and there is some confusion about which cemetery Fidelia is buried in. This is the question I received: "I recently found out that my great grandparents (Irish) are buried in St. Mary's cemetery in the Bloomfield section of Pittsburgh, which is fairly close to my office, and which is the one that you wrote that your family member is buried in. I'm not sure what part of the country you're in, but graves in Pittsburgh aren't very photogenic this time of year. In spite of that, I was going to make a trip to that cemetery hopefully in the next few weeks and was going to get the photo you requested as I was also going to get pics of my great grandparents' graves. However, there is no record of anyone by Fidelia's first or last name being buried in this cemetery or in any of the cemeteries that is overseen by the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh. There are many Catholic non-diocesan cemeteries here that are run by their local parishes, so perhaps she is buried in one of those. The other possibility is that this St. Mary's cemetery has her name spelled incorrectly, as they did for my grandparents at a different cemetery. If you can get accurate information, I will try to find her burial spot."

Additionally this comment/question: "I mistakenly said that this St. Mary's cemetery is in the Bloomfield section of Pittsburgh, but it's actually in the Lawrenceville area (they run into each other). I didn't want my error to interfere with your research. There are several St. Mary's cemeteries in the Pittsburgh area which can be googled.

For instance, there is St. Mary's German Cemetery in McKeesport, PA (a Pittsburgh suburb close to my home) which has 2 phone #'s listed--412-672-9763 or 412-672-6550."

Mary, can you glance back through your records and confirm which cemetery you found Fidelia's burial record in? I would sure appreciate it.

Thank you very much.
